Dental Implants, The Reconstruction Method That Lasts
There have been many innovations and breakthroughs throughout the history of dentistry. During this time a variety of methods have been developed when it comes to replacing missing teeth. Over 50 years ago the dental implant was discovered which has revolutionized this aspect of dentistry.
We are proud to be a provider of dental implants in both our Bellmore, NY and Bayside, NY dental offices. Dental implants have the ability to replace a single tooth or anchor a partial or complete denture. Dental implants have several advantages when compared to a fixed bridge and removable partial or complete dentures, which include:
- The ability to floss between the implant crown and adjacent tooth
- They stay fixed in the mouth
- No preparation needed on adjacent teeth
- and more…
Although the dental implant is made of titanium so it can’t grow a “cavity,” dental implants do need care just like any other tooth. Oral hygiene is very important to make sure the gums and bone around the implant stay healthy. Periodic exams at least every 6 months are necessary to make sure no pathology is present around the implant in addition to the whole mouth.
If you are interested in learning more about dental implants, we recommend scheduling a consultation at either our Bellmore or Bayside dental implant office. At this consultation Dr. Silverman, Dr. Siegel, or Dr. Gales can evaluate your mouth and see if you are a candidate for dental implants. Dental implants have a very high success rate of 98%. They can permanently change your smile and ability to eat for the better, boosting your confidence for years to come.
